Comment Saw the last night shuttle launch... (Score 1) 130

With my youngest daughter. That was an amazing experience, especially when they pointed out the space station as it flew over us in orbit, just minutes from launch, with the shuttle following the path of the space station after launch. The sky lit up, the shuttle was up in the air, and then what seemed like forever afterwards (we were about 7 miles away) a low powerful rumble shook us as we watched from across the river. Really a cool experience.

Comment Touch as VoIP handset? (Score 1) 579

Damn. Was hoping that the new iPod Touch would have a mic/speaker combo (like the iPhone without the monthly cell phone tithe) the that could be used as a VoIP phone. No, I don't want to have to use a wired headset to do this, and I don't want to use the speaker. So close... or am I mistaken about its configuration?
